Here are some famous people who were born in Oakland, CA:
Jason Kidd(Athlete), Ricky Henderson(Athlete), Huey P. Newton(Black Panthers), Keyisha Cole(Singer), Pete Escovedo(Musician), Sheila E.(Musician), Amy Tan(Author of Joy Luck Club), Billy Joe Armstrong(Green Day), Mac Dre(Rapper), Shermar Moore(Actor), Michael Franti(Singer), Steven Jenkins(Third Eye Blind), Timothy Schmidt(The Eagles), The Pointer Sisters(Singing Group), Tower of Power(Music Group), En Vogue(Singing Group), Tony Toni Tone(Singing Group), MC Hammer(Rapper), Souls of Mischief(Music Group), Digital Underground(Rap Group), Pebbles(Singer)--they are lots of others.

Lots of famous musicians and musical groups. That is so cool.

I gotta say tho, Tom Hanks(born in the suburbs) and Clint Eastwood(born in SF) werent born in Oakland, but they were raised there and are major contributors to performing arts programs in the city. My foundation has collaborated with them on so many things, its apparent they are totally devoted to their adopted hometowns.

I'm surprised that I forgot. It's just too good to be true
Ironically, Gloria Gaynor (Newark native) did a cover for that song.
